The world's tallest man - who also has the largest hands and feet - has been named by Guinness World Records for the launch of its 2010 book.
At 8ft 1in (2.47m), Sultan Kosen, from Turkey, is about 4in (10cm) taller than previous title-holder Bao Xishun.
The 27-year-old's hands measure 10.8in (27.5cm) and his feet 14.3in (36.5cm).
Mr Kosen, whose height is due to the medical condition pituitary gigantism, said he hoped his new-found fame would bring him love for the first time.
"The first thing I want to do is have a car that I can fit in, but more than that I want to get married," he said.
"Up until now it's been really difficult to find a girlfriend. I've never had one, they were usually scared of me. I'm hoping now I will find one."
He went on: "Hopefully now that I'm famous I'll be able to meet lots of girls. I'd like to get married."
